International Valve Design Challenge 2019

in Engineering held by guest
Contest Closed
The International Valve Design Challenge [IVDC] 2019 will give you all the opportunity to use the power of our upfront CFD platform and come up with innovative and improved high-performance valve designs.

We have come to you with a similar challenge wherein you will get the opportunity to modify and design an improved Double Offset Butterfly valve. These designs will be judged by an expert jury based on their flow-performance, structural-strength, and weight-optimization.

The winners and best performers will be awarded and receive amazing prizes. Also, all the participants will get global recognition for their innovative work through our social media outlets.
Expert Review
All the designs submitted for the competition will be reviewed and evaluated by our expert jury.

FEA Analysis
The IVDC team will perform FEA analysis of the valve designs to test its structural strength.

The rank of the design will be determined based on the Cv value and the Weight of the valve disc.
Don't Wants:
The design must follow the constraints and guidelines mentioned in the Guidelines document.

Sanitation Zone
This is a challenge for designing an electro-mechanical kiosk within a size of 6ft X 4ft X 7ft within minimum cost. The kiosk needs to have the following attributes: 1. Light-weight (can be ferried by 2 people). 2. Thermal scanning of body temperature. 3. Disposal of face mask and providing new face mask. 4. Fogging of bags being carried by visitors. 5. Sanitizing the bottom of the shoes of the visitor. 6. Fogging of clothes of the visitor. 7. Disposal of gloves worn by visitor on entry & providing new gloves before leaving kiosk. 8. Recording visitor entry/exit. 9. Video recording of activity within the kiosk.
Electric scooter for adult air travel
The FAA and other international flight regulators limit the amount of high powered batteries a single person can carry over 100 Wh to (either) three 101-160 Wh single batteries, or one 101-160 Wh, and a 300 Wh spare. There is no limit on batteries rated 100 Wh and below. In all cases the batteries must be removed and stored within the individual's carry-on with the terminal port covered. In relation to electric scooters, a 160 Wh scooter running a 250W motor rated for a 100kg person with no suspension has a rated travel distance of 20km. Not only is it extremely difficult to find an electric scooter with a battery rated below 160Wh, but if you do it is generally not very good quality, and is meant for kids. Most quality light weight commuter style scooters capable of traveling long distances and bearing the weight of an adult hold a capacity of about 600Wh The goal of this project is to design a locking collapsible electric scooter with a load capacity of 150 kg, capable of traveling at least 40km, which has removable 100Wh battery cells. The process of adding and extracting the cells must be simple, and they must be protected from water damage in the event of rain. Ride quality and structural integrity should be a priority, though a weight below 20kg is optimal with the batteries removed, though this is flexible. The motor power should be between 500-800W due to the increased load capacity, with a top speed of 30-40 kmh. Preference on non-inflatable wheels, though this can impact ride quality and maneuverability so suspension and tread selection is key. The body should be long enough to for an adult to comfortably stand. There should be a disk breaking system. The display should be clear and show- Battery percentage remaining, and current speed. There should be a key nessisary to start, and have the ability to be securely chained up to avoid theft.

Design a new Step Stool
The challenge is to design a new and improved Step Stool than those in the market place. Pls note: Step Stools are different from Step Ladders. Step Stools usually have 2-Steps or 3-Steps, are lightweight, slim in profile, used inside the home, are usually kept in the kitchen or closet. Ladders often have more than 3 steps, are more heavy, used for big projects, and are stored in the garage or outdoor shed. Attached is a PDF showing some of step stools now selling in the market. The best selling ones are on the first page, and they are 1) lower cost, 2) basic & simple in design and construction (that's how they are low cost), 3) but they usually have boring white frame with black steps. The better designed step stools on page-2 are 1) stylish looking, 2) some are very slim (take up less storage space), 3) some have handles that extend to help balance the user to prevent falls, while others 4) include cut outs on the step to help user "lean" to keep balance, and still others 5) include trays to hold tools. A key concern with Step Stools is SAFETY. Many injuries occur due to poor quality/design/engineer or user lose their balance when over reaching. The winning design will help prevent falls and injuries.
